Alq3 (tris(8-hydroxyquinolinato)aluminium) as a selective n-type contact for FAMAPIBr perovskite solar cells with efficient energy transfer to increase the solar cell photocurrent

Author affiliations

Abstract

We investigated the use of tris(8-hydroxyquinolinato)aluminium, known as Alq3, as a selective contact for electrons in functional FAMAPIBr (formamidinium/methylammonium lead iodide bromide) solar cells. The solar cells with Alq3 interfacial layers show excellent photocurrent upon standard 1 sun illumination (100 mW cm−2@1.5 AM G sun simulated light) due to efficient energy transfer from the selective contact layer to the perovskite.
